Periodic exterior inspections of the homes/lots in King Farm are important for ensuring all property owners are adhering to the maintenance standards listed in the governing documents. These standards contribute to enhancing curb appeal and property values.

HOA Inspections USA, an independent inspection company, will take photos of homes as part of the inspection process. The photographer will be identifiable by their colored safety vest. The photographer will be using cameras to take photos of homes from common/public areas. The photographer will not discuss what issues may be cited for yours or anyone else’s property.

The inspection is scheduled to begin February 1, 2024 (weather permitting.) If maintenance items are identified, a notice from HOA Inspections USA will be sent via USPS mail. Email notifications will NOT be sent for the initial notice. The initial notice will provide a compliance date to bring the noted items into compliance. If the items are not brought into compliance, then a Final Notice/ Intent to Hold Hearing will be sent via USPS mail, email and posted to the property address door.

If you have any questions, please contact the Management Office at 301-987-0122 or management@kingfarm.org.

Start the new year off with a bang and join the King Farm Music Jam Social Club!

King Farm Music Jam Social Club is a group of hobby musicians who come together to play music.  This group is sponsored by King Farm Citizens Assembly.  club meetings are held on a monthly basis with sessions throughout the year. 

The sessions are held at the King Farm Community Center, 300 Saddle Ridge Circle, Rockville, MD, 20850.   

Guitarists, keyboardists, percussionists, and other musicians of all levels, 18 years and older, are welcome to participate.

Bring your musical instrument.  It is also helpful to bring a music stand and a power strip if power is needed for your equipment.  For those that sing, a microphone would be helpful.

Songs are selected from a jam songbook and generally have common chords.  A phone, tablet, or computer is needed.

Also, feel free to bring song sheets for any songs with common chords you would like to share; 10 to 15 copies should do it.

Email kingfarmmusicclub@gmail.com if you would like to participate.  Detailed dates and times to come!


            Another busy week for King Farm Neighbors Village (KFNV)—with two events.  On Tuesday, February 20th, twenty participants enjoyed an evening of “Bingo in the Center.”  Nine lucky bingo winners won gifts from King Farm merchants. Then on Thursday, February 22nd, the KFNV hosted another informative and engaging conversation with Mr. Ralph Buglass of Montgomery History, entitled, “Separate but Unequal: The History of School Segregation in Montgomery County.”  The KFNV has been fortunate to have hosted Mr. Buglass three times before and this presentation like his others was both compelling and thought-provoking.

The two following events round out KFNV’s February schedule.  

  1. The Walking Club continues its jaunts Monday-Thursday at 4 pm, except in the case of inclement weather. The group meets in the park across from The Fontina Grille. Please feel free to join the walks even if you have never joined before.
  2. On Wednesday, February 28, 2024 from 10:00-11:30 am, Coffee and Conversation participants will meet in the King Farm Community Center where the topic, reflecting Black History month, will be “What African-American person (celebrity or not) do you admire and why?”

Please note that the monthly Movie Club, Book Club, Coffee and Conversation gatherings, and many highlight events are held at the King Farm Community Center, 300 Saddle Ridge Circle, Rockville, MD 20850.  In case of inclement weather and if there is time to notify participants, the KFNV may opt for a Zoom presentation for any meeting or event.  Finally, the KFNV offers transportation to many of its monthly events for KFNV members. Please contact the Operations Coordinator at kfnvinfo@gmail.com, or leave a voicemail at (301) 799-8104 to arrange for transportation.


The KFNV continues to support King Farm residents with its community services: transportation to appointments, simple household tasks, friendly phone calls/texts, and friendly visits. Please feel free to avail yourself of all of the community services that the KFNV offers. If you are in doubt about whether a task could be performed by one of the KFNV volunteers, go ahead and fill out the service form on the KFNV website. Our Operations Team will get back to you to determine if the task is under our umbrella of tasks. Also, please note that services are open to KFNV members only; however, membership is free and an easy process. See below on how to contact the KFNV to schedule any of the services or with any questions that you may have about the services as well as how to become a KFNV member.

Volunteers—Sign Language Interpreter Needed

            The KFNV is always looking for a “few good volunteers” to provide community services to its members like drives to appointments, friendly visits, and help with simple household tasks. In particular, the KFNV is looking for someone to volunteer as a sign language interpreter for those members who are hearing impaired. Please feel free to contact the Operations Coordinator for any questions you may have  about becoming a KFNV volunteer  by calling (301) 799-8104,  emailing to kfnvinfo@gmail.com , or viewing  the KFNV website at www.kfnv.org for information as well as an on-line form to fill out to become a KFNV volunteer. The KFNV thanks you for your consideration in becoming a KFNV volunteer.

Contacting the KFNV

For most of the KFNV monthly events as well as the services, membership is required; but membership is as easy as filling out an on-line or mail-in form with residency in the King Farm community being the only membership requirement.  We are a multi-generational Village; therefore, there is no age requirement to join the KFNV. The KFNV welcomes all King Farm residents of all ages.

Although there is no fee to become a KFNV member, the KFNV does, however, accept and welcome donations; for these donations help defray the cost of KFNV services and events.

For information on how to register for any of the above events, to request a service or a ride, to become a KFNV member or a volunteer, or to make a donation, please contact the Operations Coordinator by calling (301) 799-8104 to  leave a voicemail,  emailing the KFNV at kfnvinfo@gmail.com , or viewing the KFNV website at  www.kfnv.org.

RockView Program

If you have a ring camera (or other front door/doorbell camera), you can register it with the RCPD. The RockView program allows residents and business owners to voluntary register their privately owned video security camera systems with the RCPD. Registration in the RockView program does not enable law enforcement to view camera footage without an owner’s permission. However, the RockView program will allow city police to quickly identify security cameras that may have captured criminal activity when a crime is reported nearby. For more information about the RockView program, click here. 

If you have a crime or concern to report, please contact the Rockville City Police Department at:

Non-Emergency: 240-314-8900
Emergency: 9-1-1
2 W. Montgomery Ave, Rockville, Maryland 20850
